Ok now here is a story about a conversation I had with a "new" biker. He was so proud he just purchased his First bike a 1988 suzuki intruder..... shaft drive. Both tires dry rotted and lots of rust. I have an 05 600rr. He proceeds to tell me how his bike can really get away from ya and he can see why the person before him got rid of it. He then tells me I have a pretty nice bike but it would REALLY be something if it had HIS 1400cc v twin on it, ya know like a buell. I started to laugh at him but relized he wasn't laughing so I quit laughing, he was actually being serious. I told him he should really think about getting some new rubber and he blew it off like I was speaking spanish. Whatever I didn't even respond he is obviously going to hurt himself and has no business being on a bike. Everyone says I should have got on my bike and blew him away, I say screw that if he's gonna hurt himself trying to keep up I don't want that on my head. I told him to keep the rubber side down and rode off nice and easy letting him think he has one baddass bike.........him and his novelty half helmet were still sitting there trying to get his bike started.
